Escape the hustle and bustle of Milan on a full-day sightseeing tour of 3 gems of the Ligurian Coast. Departing by bus from central Milan, drive south to the capital of Liguria and the largest seaport in Italy at Genova (Genoa).
Milan can be really fun and extravagant, but how about giving yourself a chilled and relaxed day trip to a scenic drive along the serene Ligurian Coast?
Italy is renovated for being a small country with the highest concentration of diversity in flora and fauna in the whole planet earth! Therefore, when visiting Milan, you cannot miss the opportunity to go visit the historic streets of Genova, enriched with maritime monuments and memorials to Christopher Columbus!
See stunning sights, such as San Lorenzo Cathedral, the Palace of the Doges, and the Royal Palace. Sail along the Ligurian coast to the glamorous fishing village of Portofino, a popular escape for celebrities. Relax in the charming harbor of Portofino, full of colorful fishing boats and houses, and, finally, discover the picturesque harbor of Santa Margherita Ligure.
Also known as “La Superba” that stands for “the superb one” due to its impressive landmarks, part of the old town was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006. Explore streets rich in art, gastronomy, and architecture. The birthplace of Christopher Columbus, its role in maritime history is beyond compare. Once one of the “Maritime Republics,” along with Venice, Pisa, and Amalfi, the ornate buildings and monuments reveal a rich story of trade and shipbuilding.
Next, relax at the pearl of the Ligurian Sea at Portofino, a small village that dates back to the Roman period. Its glittering harbor and colorful waterfront houses have made it a much sought-after destination among celebrities, while its Roman name of Portus Delphini (Port of the Dolphin) reflects the large number of dolphins that inhabited the Tigullian Gulf.
End your tour at Santa Margherita Ligure, where the maritime scenery and turquoise sea blends beautifully with the green of the Ligurian hills, colorful fishing boats bob in the harbor, and picturesque fishermen’s houses transport you back to a less hurried time.

The tour has been well organised. The tour leader from Zani Viaggi was very good and we learned a lot of interesting information on the way. We liked the itinerary and enjoyed the allocated free time in Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino. The tour guide in Genoa was very knowledgeable as well and gave a good tour of the city. I would definitely recommend this tour to other travellers.
Che piacevole giornata! Grazie a tutti. Aggiungerei la possibilità di fermarsi un giorno in più. Cordialmente
Gita interessante con il mio gruppo di amici. Tutto molto ben organizzato
Che incantevole scoperta la città di Genova. C'ero stato da piccolo e ritornarci è stato stupendo. E che dire di Portofino? Uno dei posti più belli che abbia mai visitato. E' stata un'esperienza bellissima. Ve la consiglio
A parte il caldo davvero torrido è stata una giornata molto positiva. E' un tour che mi permetto di consigliare. Tutto è migliorabile, ma noi ci siamo trovati davvero bene
